Bas­ket­ball fi­nals

Euroa Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Euroa Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion had a very suc­cess­ful ladies’ com­pe­ti­tion with Flames dom­i­nat­ing Thun­der in the fi­nal by win­ning 65 to 18.

The Flames team fea­tured Marnie Bur­ton, Me­gan O’Bree, Melinda Wat­son, Tay­lah El­lis, Dianne Marin, Jac­inta By­ers and Tea­gan Hansen.

The Thun­der in­cluded Emma Burke, Ada Ches­sor, Zara Hinss, Jaz Ed­wards, Maria Jack­ob­sen, Ge­or­gia Birch, Michelle Jesser and Abby Wil­liams.

It was the first time some of the young girls from the Thun­der team had played as most of these girls usu­ally play net­ball.

They showed big im­prove­ments and had good fun, and of course made it to the grand fi­nal.

Marnie Bur­ton won the ‘ Best and Fairest’ for the sea­son with Melinda Wat­son run­ners up.

The men also had a great com­pe­ti­tion this term with the Hor­nets the vic­tors over ‘2 Live Crew’.

The men’s term four bas­ket­ball com­pe­ti­tion was won by Hor­nets.

This was the sec­ond time this year that they had beaten ‘2 Live Crew’ in a grand fi­nal.

Hor­nets scored 48 points to 34, with lead­ing scor­ers Kobe Black 12, Bray­den Frost 12 and Tom Mad­den 11.

‘2 Live Crew’s Jack Smith was best scorer in that team with 15 in­di­vid­ual points.

The game, as typ­i­cal in this com­pe­ti­tion, was played in good spirit, with all play­ers do­ing their best.

The sea­son’s ‘ Best and Fairest’ was won by Bray­den Frost with a three way tie for run­ners up in Scott Wat­son, Sean Hors­burgh and Ja­cob Hogg.

Bray­den was also awarded a C grade ref­eree badge.

Bray­den has been ref­eree- ing with Euroa Bas­ket­ball over a num­ber of years and he is off to univer­sity and will hope­fully be able to keep ‘ reff­ing’ with this C grade award.

We wish Bray­den luck and thank him for his help cov­er­ing the um­pir­ing du­ties through­out the year.

The ref­er­ees that we get in from Kil­more and Shep­par­ton often com­ment about the great sports­man­ship of play­ers in the com­pe­ti­tion and so they’re al­ways happy to travel here.

KEEP­ING IT IN THE FAM­ILY: Broth­ers, Bryce, Cameron and Bray­den Frost, all played to­gether in the win­ning grand fi­nal team.

THRILLED: Marnie Bur­ton was recog­nised for her ef­forts in the 2016 ladies’ bas­ket­ball sea­son by be­ing awarded the ‘Best and Fairest’.

VALU­ABLE CON­TRI­BU­TION: Bray­den Frost was not only the ‘Best and Fairest’ for the men’s com­pe­ti­tion but in ad­di­tion he often ref­er­eed games.
